1.5 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near El Cajon, California

Hidden gem of East County! If you are looking for a great place to hike you have to visit this place. There are a lot of trails. Some are not marked very well, but I am told they are in the process of working on that now. There is a beautiful Oak grove with a huge amount of Engelmann and Coast live oaks that provide a shady spot to walk and explore. There are lots of horseback riders and mountain bikers so don't be surprised if you need to share the trails. You can even bring your dog for a walk

Love this trail It's clean & beautiful with friendly people to say hi to along the way. Dog friendly environment with doggy station (water,poop bags,&trash) There is access to the lake to let your dog splash around too. For bike rider's, they have a station to fix a flat tire or take a break under a mister to help cool down. I'm really impressed with this trail there is so much to say but go check it out yourself

4.6 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Jamul, California that features a river

Was able to visit this hiking area during my Thanksgiving vacation, it was actually quite hot outside for November. The parking lot for this place is off Honey Springs road, which is right off the main drag of Campo rd. The trailhead has a few notices and a map showing you the canyon with the different paths for trails. The great thing about this canyon hike is the many different ways you can go around it. The pathways are very well maintained and and wide enough to bring your dog with you. This
